Abandoned dealership...

Stumbled across this abandoned dealership recently. Had my camera on me, so decided to explore. Didn't have time to copyright the pictures, but please treat as such.

Hope you enjoy!

I've read about that dealership online quite a few times, fascinating. As far as I can tell, the dealership I took photos of has sat "abandoned" for roughly three years. I took a lot more photos, and am happy to post them up if you'd like. It's an old Chrysler dealership (you can tell by all the cars in the photos).

I'll post a few more tonight. And no, could not get inside the building (or rather, did not try) but did peek through the windows. Found some older Mercedes Benzes stored inside, but they were hard to see. The office looks like they literally just got up and left. All the paperwork is still there.

They moved to a new location and have let this one sit as-is for years. At least, that's what I've gathered so far.
